Where is the Office 2000 SR-1 administrator updates (O2KSR1aDL.exe)?

The Office 2000 SR-1 administrator updates (O2KSR1aDL.exe) is no longer available on the Microsoft Download Center.  This is because Office 2000 extended support expired July 2009:

    Here is a community tech site with download information for Office 2000 SR1.


    See post #22 for an FTP site

  2. In response to Richard Adams – Should the files still be available from the Microsoft Download Center?  Yes they should. The only reason and the critical one that those files are not available anymore on the download center is because we don’t have them.  There was an issue with how these specific files were tagged and stored.  The result is that they were set to expire July 2009 and were apparently auto-purged.   Office files for Office 2003 and later versions are stored very differently so this shouldn’t ever be an issue for those files.

    Apologies again for the inconvenience!  Please do check out community newsgroups to see if someone can hook you up with the files you need.

    There are some places where you can find it:


    The problem is that the file is localized. I’m looking for the Dutch version. Anyone?

    I’m in desperate need the Spanish version? Anyone?

    Just because it’s not supported is no reason to not still have it available. The fact that the SR1A package is available but does not download its components correctly makes this very frustrating. Why would MS still make SP2 and SP3 available, but not keep SP1 working? I don’t think it’s a huge expense for MS to keep this file available for download.

    I worked for MS as a temp for a while, and have positive memories of my co-workers and of how I was well-treated while I was there. I think people bash MS too readily, and that they underestimate how much better things are than they used to be (I well remember how my best friend and I had different computers, a Radio Shack Color Computer and a TI-994A, and sharing info between them was virtually impossible). MS has made the world a better place, and they have my respect. But there is no good reason to be a poor corporate citizen on this and eliminate a critical update from being downloaded just because it’s no longer supported.

    Put this file back up for download, Microsoft! There’s no good reason not to!

    You can download the english version from msdn subscriber downloads.

    It’s included in the Tools and Resources -> Office Resource Kit XP and 2000.

    Microsoft – If you couldn’t find it – now you can…

  18. Really need the Swedish version of O2KSR1a says:


    If anyone could help me get the Swedish version of O2KSR1a again I would be very grateful indeed!

    I just reinstalled an old computer and used the Office 2000 CD:s.

    When I was going to patch it I realized that Microsoft REMOVED the first servicepack needed for all the rest!  🙁

    Unfortunately Daniels link to SkyDrive doesn't work anymore, at least not for me.

    If anyone can help me please send me a message at

    algot dot runebjork at comhem dot swedishtopdomain

    Just because it's not supported is no reason to not still have it available. — just one more reason I bought an apple for at home (even though I hate apples) — Microsoft's customer service is horrible.

  24. Dennis Kerr says:

    Removing a regularly needed file because support has ended?

    Bing makes Microsoft look bad.

    Google gives better results.

    Computers are supposed to be Microsoft core competencey right?

  25. Poul Mulvis says:
